Papyrology and Early Christian Backgrounds


Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Papyrology and Early Christian Backgrounds Section is sponsoring four sessions at the 2014 Annual Meeting: two open sessions and two panel sessions with invited papers. For the open sessions we invite proposals that seek to explore how the ancient papyri illumine the world of early Christianity and will elucidate paleographic, linguistic, and textual questions, as well as larger questions relating to the social and cultural history of early Christianity. The two invited sessions are as follows: (1) an invited panel on the transmission of the text of the Epistle to the Hebrews, jointly sponsored with the Hebrews Section and NT Textual Criticism Section, which will examine recent papyrological evidence and the text of Hebrews in the Editio Critica Maior; and (2) an invited panel on Didymus the Blind and the Tura papyri.
